One state, Indiana, has made it easier for consumers to find these COAs. Since July, all hemp-derived CBD products sold in stores in Indiana must include a QR code on their label that lets consumers download a product’s COA to their phone. All CBD products sold at Indiana locations of Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, a Midwest regional chain, now carry those codes, says Jonathan Lawrence, director of vitamins and body care at the chain. “It’s important for any consumer to know what’s in their product and what they’re taking,” Lawrence says.
Michele Buckler’s testimony: On Sunday, March 26, 2018 I did a small vendor show in Camden Delaware. My boyfriend, Mark was also there. Thankfully he was there, I was not feeling my greatest (my pain level was about 7 to 7.5 out of 10). I have been diagnosed with chronic pain and inflammation throughout my body. I am always in pain or discomfort and have had to learned to navigate my life with it, some days are better than other, and some cycles are better than others.
HempWorx CBD is an interesting brand that has no issue with transparency in terms of how they operate as a business, and where they source their raw hemp plant material from. Also, one of the main things that stands out to me as that they’re one of the only companies I know of that offers specific dosing guidelines for a range of serious medical conditions. This is a bit odd, however, as they also make it clear that CBD is not approved by the FDA as a medicine, and thus none of their products are designed to “treat, cure, or prevent” any disease.
